We still have Lynx version 2-3FM available but we never used version 2.4.2 so I
can't see if it works under the OpenVMS operating system. However, version
2-3FM does misbehave with the URL, omitting some of the
text when the links are selected. This doesn't appear to happen with Lynx
versions 2.5FM or 2.6FM (we haven't installed the latest version - 2.7 - yet).
I'd advise trying a more recent version of Lynx - see URL for where to get the current version.

I'm copying this reply to the LYNX-DEV list in case someone else can throw any
light on the problem.
